Villeroy & Boch BBQ Passion

For a cute way to serve this savory snack at your Oscar gathering, we recommend using the French Fry Cups from our BBQ Passion collection. Though obviously intended for french fries, we think these cups would make cute individual popcorn buckets!

Beer Chili

2 Tb. olive oil
1 lb. sirloin, diced (or ground beef)
1 lb. ground sausage
3 Tb. masa, (corn flour)
2 Tb. ancho chile powder
½ tsp. cayenne, optional
1 ½ Tb. cumin
1 Tb. dried oregano
1 large onion, small dice
1 red pepper, small dice
¾ cup minced carrot
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 ½ tsp. salt
1-2 Tb. brown sugar
2- 28 oz. cans crushed or pureed tomatoes
2 -14 oz. cans kidney or pinto beans, drained
1 bottle of mild flavored beer
*Shredded cheese, sour cream and green onions to top the chili

Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, peppers, carrots and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes.
Next add the ground beef and sausage and cook until brown—8-10 minutes—breaking up all the meat clumps.
Add the masa, chile powder, cumin and oregano, cook another 3 minutes stirring regularly. Add the salt, sugar, tomatoes, beans, ¾ of the beer and scrape the bottom to deglaze.
Reduce and cook at least another 30 minutes—partially covered—until flavors are well combined and the chili has thickened. Stir occasionally.
Add a couple dashes of cayenne pepper for extra heat. Serve with favorite toppings and tortilla chips or cornbread!
